Bible Study Notes on Luke 19:1-27 – 20180815

Luke 19:1-2  "...passed through Jericho...a man named Zacchaeus..." So Zacchaeus either lived in Jericho or in the area between Jericho and Jerusalem.  It says Jesus passed through.  Could go either way.  Verse 11 will mention Him being near Jerusalem, so perhaps they were outside Jericho.  But we get the general area. 3  "...he sought to …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 18:24-43 – 20180813

Luke 18:27  "...The things which are impossible with men are possible with God" Jesus is speaking here specifically regarding salvation.  Man cannot save himself, but God can provide a way for him and has.  Yet, I think we can use the phrase for any situation.  Nothing is impossible for God.  As Job said, no purpose …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 18:9-23 – 20180810

Luke 18:9  "...who trusted in themselves that they were righteous..." What they did.  Who they were.  Followed the law.  Were children of Abraham.  All that led to was pride. 11  "...extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector" I think Jesus was throwing in some irony here.  These are the sins He normally called …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 18:1-8 – 20180808

Luke 18:1  "...men always ought to pray and not lose heart" Not easy to do.  Praying is easy most of the time, but not losing heart is difficult when the answer is delayed. 2  "...in a certain city..." Part of the story.  Like once upon a time.  Could have some basis in actual occurrence, but …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 17:11-37 – 20180806

Luke 17:11  "...He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee" Jesus didn't follow the practice of avoiding Samaria as some Jews did in order to get to Jerusalem. 14  "...so it was that as they went, they were cleansed" Act of faith.  They did what Jesus told them to do.  Still had leprosy as …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 17:1-10 – 20180804

Luke 17:1  "...It is impossible that no offenses should come..." That's rather amazing.  Impossible that no offenses or stumbling blocks should come.  When we get upset about them, we should remember what Jesus said.  They're going to come.  We just have to learn how to properly deal with them. 1  "...woe to him through whom …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 16:19-31 – 20180801

Luke 16:19-20  "...certain rich man...certain beggar named Lazarus..." Interesting that he names the beggar, but not the rich man.  Tradition has named him Dives, the Latin term for rich or rich man.  One commentary suggested that Lazarus was a name meaning needy or poor and thus would be the contrast to the rich man. 21  …
